Teacher training to continue focus on Common Core

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana's universities have been instructed to continue training teachers to the Common Core education standards even though Gov. Bobby Jindal is trying to derail the standards in public school classrooms.

The Board of Regents, which oversees higher education in the state, issued a memo Monday to teacher preparation deans directing them to continue Common Core training.

The memo says the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education is the agency that approves teacher preparation programs to allow people to become certified teachers - and BESE has adopted and continues to support Common Core.

Jindal announced last week that he was taking steps to try to disrupt use of the multi-state education standards in Louisiana's classrooms. But BESE's president and Superintendent of Education John White say Jindal has overstepped his authority.
